MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Janée J. Baugher's new book of poems is The Body's Physics. Peggy Shumaker says of it, "Her words praise 'what we see and can never see.' Her profound conversations with visual art, deep journeys of mind and body, remind us to be 'open in the manner that a sea opens.' Fine gifts, these poems." Her first collection is Coördinates of Yes. Widely published in nonfiction, fiction, and poetry, she's collaborated with visual artists, composers, and choreographers, and her work has been adapted for the stage and set to music at the University of Cincinnati, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Dance Now! Ensemble in Florida, and elsewhere.
Patti Trimble is a writer and visual artist who divides her time between northern California and Sicily. She often links her poetry and visual art as a personal response to landscape, myth, and environmental concerns, and is known for lyric performances of her poetry with music. Her poems are published in anthologies and journals, four chapbooks, and Small Craft Advisories, a spoken word CD. She has performed her poetry at hundreds of venues and was co-creator—and for a decade, featured poet—at the Tuolumne Poetry Festival in Yosemite National Park. Her writing has received grants from the Lannan Foundation; Poets & Writers; a Pushcart nomination; finalist awards from Glimmer Train literary journal, a P&W California Writer’s Award; and artist residencies at Djerassi Foundation.
